WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

So happy.

CCF23 07-01-2010 01:51 PM

$2.5 mil is kinda steep, but he'll fit AWESOME on our bottom 6.

windflare 07-01-2010 01:51 PM

3 years, 2.5mil per, No Trade.

ChemicalHansen 07-01-2010 01:51 PM

3 yrs / 7.5 million

Score 30+ goals or this deal is a bust.

:sarcasm:

Note: WTH is an "AAV"?

Lucbourdon 07-01-2010 01:51 PM

Good deal

JannikAtTheDisco 07-01-2010 01:52 PM

Holy thats overpayment...but I think I'll take it he'll be a big piece of the puzzle

pitseleh 07-01-2010 01:52 PM

A bit much money for my liking but happy with the player.

FiveAndGame 07-01-2010 01:53 PM

Good deal! How much does this mean we have for Hamhuis?

Durr 07-01-2010 01:53 PM

Burrows is kicking himself now.

With Bieksa gone? As much as we want.

King of Anarchy 07-01-2010 01:54 PM

How is 2.5 a bit overpayment for Manny Malhotra? Colby Armstrong isn't much better, and he got 3 million per.

Edit: I take that back. Armstrong isn't better at all.

Shane 07-01-2010 01:54 PM

Maybe 500k too much, but he'll be great on our third line. Makes us tougher to play against.

hardly a "deal"

i'd say we overpaid for quality on our bottom 6. 2.5/per and a NTC is steep for a 3rd liner.

we used to think bernier was overpaid in our bottom 6... we basically trade that for someone who has always been expected to be nothing more than a bottom 6 (while bernier was always thought to have the potential to play top 6)

smileyface 07-01-2010 01:54 PM

A bit more money than I thought he would get but I really like this signing.

NFITO 07-01-2010 01:54 PM

surprised he's getting 3yrs, with Gillis wanting young guys to push for roster spots... and $2.5mill/yr seems too high IMO.

parabola 07-01-2010 01:54 PM

Overpaid by about .5 mil/per ... But I really like Malholtra.

Placebo Effect 07-01-2010 01:55 PM

Wow McGuire with his Hodgson comments

I was thinking the same thing, manny is better and 500k cheaper

Tiranis 07-01-2010 01:55 PM

Seems like a good deal. We have the cap space so why not? For a team with cap space issues I could understand how this could be a bad deal, but for Canucks? Perfect.

Blueangel1891 07-01-2010 01:56 PM

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees :yo::yo::yo::yo:

CloutierForVezina 07-01-2010 01:57 PM

This is the kind of guy we really, really need in our bottom 6.

Think of it this way - he cost 500k more than Bernier :)

Diamonddog01 07-01-2010 01:57 PM

Brutal, brutal signing. Not happy with this at all. If Hodgson makes the team (you have to assume he will at some point over the next 3 years) we have a 4th line centre making 2.5million AND with an NTC?

Just as bad as the Armstrong signing. Just an awful headscratcher.

dangerous dan 07-01-2010 01:58 PM

This will be a great fit and Malholtra will anchor our third line and solidify the PK...but I hope this deal doesn't bite us down the road, especially with that NTC. Maybe it's just a limited NTC?

BC Ben 07-01-2010 01:58 PM

Can win faceoffs, plays the PK and understands his role in the NHL...

I will take it even if it puts us under some pressure for the cap.

PLUS - He isn't on SJ anymore... :yo:
